Description:

A recent addition to the many fine Albemarle County parks and lakes, 47-acre Walnut Creek Lake was impounded in 1990 and is the primary attraction at Walnut Creek Park.

From Charlottesville, take Route 29 south to Red Hill, take left onto Route 708 and go three miles to Route 631 (right), go about 1/2 mile to the park on the left.
The lake has excellent populations of largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, redear sunfish, and channel catfish. Although the lake bottom was cleared of trees prior to impoundment, fish attractors have been added at several locations. In addition to fishing, the lake provides other family-oriented recreational activities including swimming, canoeing, and picnicking. The county has provided excellent parking and ramp facilities for accessing the lake.
